The Wells Fargo Foundation, in working toward a goal of promoting academic achievement among low and moderate income youth, has awarded the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County (BGCSC) with a $20,000 grant for our Power Hour Program. This funding will allow Clubs to continue to provide our nationally-validated after school homework help and tutoring program. Additionally, through Power Hour, youth can participate in staff-facilitated high yield learning activities allowing kids to practice vital school skills and gain mastery over course topics. Kids who participate in Power Hour stay on-track with course materials, achieve and maintain average and above-average grades, and advance on-time to the subsequent grade. BGCSC is honored to continue to work with Wells Fargo to enable Snohomish County youth to succeed in school.
